Spectacular for the price!

Emily P., Newegg
30 December 2009
  • Summary: I have a Music Theory degree and have an acute sense of sound. Music is my life, I do agree with other reviewers that the bass response isn't as heavy as some other mainstream brands, but IMO they were perfectly balanced.
  • Pros: Excellent piece of sound engineering! Fit comfortably in my ear. Sound reproduction is very accurate. Cord is long enough but not too long. Fabric covered cord is a nice touch, makes it easy to untangle. Call quality was as expected, crisp, clear, and uninterrupted from background noise; however,...
  • Cons: I have encountered a few nuances with the buds: When pushing them into the ear I occasionally get a crackling noise (like rustling a plastic bag). I know I am pushing in too hard and bending the plastic film on the drivers, but "meh", pretty mute point IMO. The other issue I have noticed is durin...

Too good to be true?

Anonymous, Newegg
18 November 2009
  • Summary: Only had them for 2 days so I can't speak on durability but for $25 shipped you just can't go wrong. I'm not an audiophile but they sound just fine to me.
  • Pros: Comfortable, cheap, fabric covered cable doesn't tangle, mic works well, prefer being able to pause/skip with remote over volume control.
  • Cons: None yet

lasted 2 months

Thomas C., Newegg

  • Summary: it least the inline switch didn't break like in the official iphone earbuds.
  • Pros: excellent sound isolation. Sometimes use them as earplugs without playing any sound through them. Easy to get volume loud enough without room sounds interfering.
  • Cons: I missed the fire alarm the first day I had them! 2 months later, the left side doesn't have sound anymore unless I jiggle the wire. Also, the wire is covered in cloth insulation. When the insulation rubs against your clothing the vibration is transmitted to your ear, just like a cup with a string.

Horrible Audio

Jonathan C., Newegg
3 September 2009
  • Summary: Not worth the price IMO.
  • Pros: Earbuds seem to fit well
  • Cons: Horrible tinny sounding audio. Almost no bass. Far worse than all other earbuds I have owned in terms of audio. No volume control for iphone. Disappointed.

Doesn't Work with iPod Touch 2G

27 August 2009
  • Pros: None
  • Cons: Microphone doesn't work with apple apps, skype, or even Griffin's own app from the iTunes Store. My overpriced Apple branded headphones/microphone work fine.

Great for Iphone, less so for ipod

Adam R., Newegg
24 August 2009
  • Summary: Great if you have an iphone, but not for someone with just an ipod.... i would say look somewhere else if you need more than a good handsfree
  • Pros: Very well made, great mic, has controls for music on the cable, earbuds dont hurt your ears after long uses
  • Cons: Music controls are difficult to use (require multiple presses of a single button), music quality is awful

Great buy

Kalta M., Newegg
15 August 2009
  • Summary: The sound quality on these is reasonable, and they are very bass heavy. There are two things you should do for optimal sound with these. First, put the smallest size covers on, and insert them firmly in place. Second, in your iTouch/Phone, set the EQ to "Small Speakers".
  • Pros: These are a spectacular deal, but the price keeps increasing. It went up quite a bit the day after I ordered them. The pros are that the cord is cloth, so there is no cable noise, which is good both for listening and for not adding unwanted sound to the mic. I'm using this with Skype on an iTouch...
  • Cons: While some reviewers complained that the sound isolation of the in-ear design was too much, I found it to be too little. They are ported, so with your music off, you can hear people talking next to you. I prefer headphones that make my surroundings SILENT. I don't want to hear what the person nex...

Better than Apple's at Half the Price

Joseph F., Newegg
8 August 2009
  • Summary: When my original set lost it's left side sound I went without for a few weeks until I found this set. When I plugged the Griffins in the mic didn't work and I was pretty upset. Tried the old set to make sure and that mic didn't work either.
  • Pros: I'm a musician. My 'real' headphones are Sennheiser HD600. These get the full 5 eggs because they do the job better for less. The Griffin headset is perfectly fine $25 sound. Better than the stock headphones. The sound is actually pretty balanced. Not a lot of bass, not a lot of treble. With the ...
  • Cons: Slight niggle: the round microphone/button isn't as easy to grab and click as the slightly flatter Apple version. Sometimes I have to feel for the button. The changeable rubber ear bits are a bit thin.

Very bright treble, non-existent bass

Steven K., Newegg
1 July 2009
  • Summary: I tried different EQ settings on my iPod Touch to try to reduce the treble and boost bass. I tried "bass booster" which helped a little but the bright treble still overpowered. I tried "treble reducer" which helped reduce the treble but bass was still non-existent.
  • Pros: Braided cover over the cable prevents tangling. Different sizes of soft rubber inserts to fit ears. Handy carrying case. Handy mic and controller button on right earphone cable.
  • Cons: As others have mentioned, very tinny (high treble) sound. Almost no bass response at all. Could not find an EQ setting on my iPod Touch to effectively compensate.
